"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;
I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly."

Last Monday was our first adventure in the land of fun. We've had discounted tickets all year, and have just been waiting for the right day. Monday was it. Most schools around here had started, it was the last regular season day for the park, beautiful weather, and minimal amounts of people.
We had an absolutely fantastic time! Madeline surprised us with her bravery, going on all the big rides. She did it all. Cora did great hanging out in the stroller most of the day.
Lydia and Anna rode all the classic Adventureland rides, causing Mark and I to reminisce about how all the rides seemed larger back in the day.
We arrived right as the park opened in the morning and rode rides all morning. We hardly had to wait in lines. Then we had a late lunch under some trees out by the van. The girls changed in to their swimming suits, and we headed to the water park. We stayed until just about 5:00, enjoying every minute of it. Our first family trip to an amusement park was a hit.
